Latin rock / US
Making Movies blends pulsing Afro-Latino rhythms, psychedelic jams, and rock ’n’ roll swagger into powerful live performances. This Kansas City band punches out one high-energy song after another, crunching classic rock into Latin American rhythms — African-derived percussion and styles like rumba, merengue, mambo and cumbia — in a way that feels familiar, yet delivers the excitement of something singular. “Perhaps one of the most unique groups around today, Making Movies is sensual, smoky, and seductive. Distorted guitars are buried under their Latin groove, colliding beautifully and urgently” (NPR).
